Symposium on the Future of Developmental Education.
This paper summarizes themes arising from a symposium on the future of developmental education in the United States. In recent years, public financial support of developmental education has been declining and is projected to decline further. Participants in a symposium on developmental education agreed on some trends that are emerging. Mainstreaming, the removal of developmental education from four-year institutions, and increased professionalism of developmental educators seem likely to continue. Increased professionalization in the ranks of developmental educators will be a helpful approach to combating the negative attitudes toward developmental education in the public, political, and academic arenas.
